Australian Antarctic Festival

The only event of its kind in Australia, the biennial Australian Antarctic Festival brings Antarctica to the Hobart waterfront. The Festival provides visitors with the opportunity to board and inspect the nation’s ice breaker which services bases on the white continent.

Visit Hobart and learn what Australians do in the highest, driest, windiest and coldest place on earth.
